opposition movement. voice of syria. in syria of course the process has been much slower the wave of defection that we saw in libya didn't exactly happen in syria and what's happening now in. syria is that people there are presenting this here in uprising are not the people who are on the ground so we started hearing for example support from different. rebel groups aren't mirabelle groups for the new opposition leadership but who knows the extent of or whether they would be able to exercise political control so what you really have to look at that there is a strong divide between leadership that is outside the country and doesn't have control on the ground and forces on the ground pretty much doing whatever they want after all we've ended with two separate opposition bodies because this syrian national council still exists alongside the national coalition the new national coalition so it's a recipe for more division and kind of lack of coherence to it for moving the country forward. but our website r.t. dot com right now it's a look at the dark side of sanctions a teenage boy in t
